A Special message from our Chair!
I write to you to share some wonderful news! After a more than 2-year hiatus, the Orchestra has returned to in-person rehearsals at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts and will perform live at the Centre on June 26th at 8:00 pm.
I am personally inviting you to our performance. and to partake in our BOGO promotional offer. Here’s how it will work: Between now and June 17th, buy one ticket, and get a second ticket at 50% off.

I am also reaching out to you to make a special ask. As mentioned above, we have not been performing for more than two years. Nonetheless, we have been active with the orchestra, practicing virtually using a special, purpose-built online platform, and we even managed to put on a few virtual performances during this time. In addition, and not surprising in the current economic environment, our costs to operate the Orchestra and perform live have increased. It is a challenging time to make ends meet.
As such, I am reaching out to you to ask for your support. If you are able to, could you please make a donation to our CanadaHelps fundraising campaign at: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/the-richmond-hill-philharmonic-orchestra/
Your support will be so appreciated. This is our call to you to play your part in helping the Orchestra rise above these challenging times.
Thank you for your generous and continued support of the Orchestra. We look forward to seeing you in person on June 26th .
Warm regards, Jacques Gaboury
President and Chair of the Board
